Excellent staff, excellent view, excellent food We stayed for three nights and knew just what to expect as we had stayed twice before. We were not disappointed, friendly staff and a comfortable room with a lovely view and a balcony where we could also watch the birds visit the feeders. The meals were top quality, we eat fish but not meat and there was plenty of choice. We were really pleased when we were offered a vegetarian choice of appetiser on the one evening that the planned one was meat. Breakfast was excellent too with a good range of f...

We visited yesterday afternoon for an afternoon tea. From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by the gentleman on reception, the service can be summed up in one word "excellent". The gentleman on reception was helpful and polite and the service we received from Chris when we had been seated was first class. My partner is gluten free which we had mentioned when booking and we had no need to remedy them as they had already prepared a perfect gluten free afternoon tea for her. Nothing else really needs to be said other than, from start to fi...

We visited for Sunday lunch last weekend while staying in a nearby village. The hotel was beautifully furnished and the staff were welcoming, polite & attentive. The menu choices were excellent and we both thoroughly enjoyed each of our courses. We were seated right in front of the large restaurant windows and the views out over the fells were fantastic. A real luxurious experience for our Wedding Anniversary treat! All in all we can highly recommend.

We ordered Crispy Duck Egg with black pudding, asparagus & Hollandaise sauce, and Fish Cake with pea puree & tartare sauce for starters; Roast Beef plus trimmings, and Guinea Fowl with pigs in blankets for mains; and Strawberry Panacotta with raspberry sorbet & honeycomb, and warm Carrot Cake with toffee sauce and ice cream for desserts. Everything was delicious I can't say more than that....

The service was spot on with the waitress making sure we were really well looked after. We have known a Chris and Mike from other Lakeland hotels and their input must be a massive contribution to a won...
